Par Tee Golf News: New Golfers Inducted To The Par Tees
“There is no such thing as a natural touch. Touch is something you create by hitting millions of balls.” – Lee Trevino
Low score for the day belongs to Doris Neimeth with a 66. Right behind her was Dolores McAleer with a 68. In the 70’s: the trio of Betty Weed, Barbara Caramelli and Peg Ansbro had 72; Marilyn Danese had 75, Helen Mele and Lyn Canavan had 78 and Pat Kelly scored 79. Birdies belong to Dolores McAleer and Barbara Caramelli.
Two chip-ins were recorded for the day and they belong to Pat Kelly and Carol Bayne. Closest to the pin on #10 was Helen Mele and on #18 the winner was Carol Bayne. The winner of the Peggy Wheeler 50/50 was Betty Weed.
Back at the Catholic Club President Lorraine Pierson welcomed the new members. They include Lyn Canavan, Ann Campbell and Marge Resner. Lyn Canavan returned to the Par Tees after an absence of several years and everyone was very happy to see her back on the course. These ladies will complement our group and add to our spirit of friendly competition.
During the course of our meeting, some information of note was announced. First we are reminded that penalty strokes must be taken for a lost ball and/or a ball caught in the weeds; this is a one stroke penalty. Upcoming events were reviewed, one of which was the Guys and Dolls Tournament which will be held on July 21. Get your foursomes together; partners can be provided. Betty Monahan and Marilyn Higgins are in charge. The fall luncheon will be held at Russo’s on September 15. Betty Weed and Carol Smyth are the co-chairpersons. Many thanks to Bob Pierson for having set up the Catholic Club for our luncheon!
It is with a sad heart that I report the death of our friend and colleague, Mary O’Rourke, who passed away in April. I believe she was an original member. Mary was the quintessential lady; so intelligent, thoughtful and caring …the world will miss her!! Rest in peace, my friend!!
Four old men went into the pro shop after playing 18 holes of golf. The pro asked, “Did you guys have a good game today?” The first old guy said, “Yes, I had three riders today.” The second guy said, “I had the most riders ever. I had five.” The third guy said, “I had 7 riders, the same as last time.” The last old man said, “I beat my old record. I had 12 riders today.”
After they went into the locker room another golfer who had heard the old guys talking about their game went to the pro and said, “I have been playing golf for a long time and thought I knew all the terminology of the game, but what’s a rider?” The pro said, “A rider is when you hit the ball far enough to get in the golf cart and ride to it.”
God Bless. Have a great week!
